haha, they tend to throw only one of each though, not ´pairs´, and always from the left foot.

you are just great! you taught us all !!!!

i may give you another one, my dear

what was so special in mother of Kuzma that Nikita wanted to show her ?

 

i actually read the memories of Nikita´s son about that episode. he said that  shoes were a bit big for Khrushchev and he lost one in the corridor on his way to rostrum. but he did  not have time to put it back on. so he just took it, entered the room and started speaking, holding that shoe in one hand. so he just used what was in his hand to show the passion
